    Heard a good one the other day, talking to a fellow bass player while playing my peavey milestone II through a 225w peavey combo. He listened for a minute and said, "You know, your bass sounds pretty good through that amp. I guess two wrongs really do make a right."

    I have a Peavy amp and I hate the goddamn thing more than life itself.
     
  5. We use Peavey speakers for my drama class. I GUESS they are okay, if you only speak through them and don't yell.

    Rock on

  6. My school seems to use Peavey speakers exclusively.
    Then again, compared to anything else they can buy at that size and in such large quantities here in Hong Kong, they seem to work wonders...

    I have a Peavey CS-400 Poweramp and it sounds great, plays loud and literally shakes my neighbours roof. If you don't like the tone on your amp get a better preamp because something like a Poweramp is designed to do mainly one thing, amplify (not increase the quality of the signal).

    Y'all just keep right on trashin' Peavey....I'll just keep right on playing through my T-max head and 210txf cabs and sounding better than 90% of the bassists I hear :D (we won't discuss whether or not I PLAY better than them :eek: )

    Well I'm a BIG Peavey fan, but I still think these jokes a very funny. Especially the one about the unbalanced washing machine. Too funny!

    Hey, now! =) My school uses a Peavy bass amp, and I find it to be quite a good piece of equipment. It works out just fine for me.

    I used to own a peavey combo. I think it was 130 watts...
    I bought used for like $200. Later on i was need of money, so I sold it to a friend of mine who happens to be a guitar player. And he now uses it as a GUITAR CABINETT! He claims he can get great sounds out of the speaker, and I'm just sorry I sold it. That was five years ago and he's still using it. Im over that, and am now a proud owner of a hartke 350 watts amp with a mesa 2X15 cabinett.

    While I agree that these Jokes ARE funny, I do have an irresistable urge to defend MY rig, I am very happy with my MK IV head AND my 2x15 cab, until I have to move the &^$#
    thing. I've rattled a few guitarists too, had one that couldn't hear his Crate while he was sitting on it!

    I, too will have to defend my Peavey Amp. MkVIII Head, 4x10 cab, and hand made 1x10/1x15 cab. Sounds good, and shakes the room. But that's still not going to stop me from getting a Mesa 400+ in a few months :)
